Leupold Mark 4 8,5x50 mm ER/T Sighting-In
Hi out there!
I got my Remington 700 Police in .300 WinMag with a Leupold Mark 4 8,5 - 25x50 mm ER/T mounted on it.
Before going out sighting my "Baby" in, I wanted to gather some theoretical information on the effect of the MOA / Nr. of clicks on the point of impact at different distances.
In Germany and with the various scopes, which I have I know that at 100 m one, click means 1 cm (elevation or windage). In the owner’s handbook of my scope, I found that with this scope 1 MOA represents 29 mm at 100 m, which means to me 1 click (1/4 MOA) results in a shift of point of impact of 7,25 mm at 100 m!
This ultimately means to me that at 200 m 1 click results in a shift of 15,5 mm and at 1.000 m 7.250 mm (7,25 m) could this be? Most probably I am mistaken!
Sorry for the trivial question but I intend getting things sorted out beforehand!
Can someone explain this to me?
Thanks and best regards from Germany
